Making a batch of bacon, so I decided to make a batch of dog treats for my Golden Retriever Jackson

I skinned the slabs, cut into strips and smoked for about 5 hours

I need to make them again. The dog loved them but I didn't refer them and after a few weeks the last few pieces went rancid...JJ

Ladies......I hear ya. The only time mine looked that clean was while it was still in the box.......:ROTF

 

Todd.........I smoked a hog for a party about 3 weeks ago. When it came time to serve, the skin magically disappeared. I have two black lab's and now I'm their new best friend..........3" x 4" pieces at a time......:rotflmao:

LOL-----Since Todd has a bunch of MES 40s, and that one is a 2nd generation, I'm betting that one is rarely used.

 

What say Todd?

Don'tcha know? That's the smoker that Todd uses for picture taking-he then moves everything over to his "Production" smoker. Haven't you noticed-he didn't post any "in progress" or "all done" qview in the smoker?? Hmm??

After taking bellies out of the smokehouse, we'd pull the skin off 15-20 of them while still hot, and always cut a couple up into strips and toss out the back door in two piles - one for cats, the other for dogs!  They loved us!

Todd, can you tell us what temperature you smoked at?

 

 

(And also, had that been our dog, I would not have been able to get a pic quick enough before it was gone.) :rolleyes:

I used my MES 40 2nd Gen

Temp was set at 225°, but actual temp inside the smoker was closer to 250°

Fat renders out pretty quickly, so you gotta have a drip pan underneath

I should have set the smoker at 180° - 200°

The Bacon Dog Treats cooked a little too fast

 

Well Bear......You are correct!

I had only used my MES 2nd Gen a couple times, but needed to do some testing, so I fired it up

Forgot that the controller was 20°+ off!!!

Good thing they were just Dog Treats!

I've been thinking of using some of my beef EOR fat caps that i trim for jerky and smoking them for the dog...think this is ok?

post #16 of 28

That is one happy pooch! :sausage:

 

If I show my dogs I can make those they would never leave me alone! lol

I will have to try those next time I do something with a bit of pork skin.

I would think a fat cap wouldn't work right. I think it has to be a skin---not just fat.

Neighbor has a Rottweiller in a pen, I used to have a Labs, and even I would hate to feed his dog! Anytime he sees me, he makes a straight line and I look for cover...... he'll knock me over trying to lick me. LOL He gets all my bones. But when I gave the neighbor some of the smoked skin off the bacon for Packman, he was amazed, (the neighbor was, not the dog, well maybe they both were). It was the first thing the couldn't crush and eat in under a min. Dog loved it. Carried it around for days. So every once in awhile I'll dig a skin out the freezer and share it.

 

You should never feed another man's dog, but I am guessing that the dog knows where they come from.

 

Oh and never give a puppy smoked fat especially if they are an inside dog.............. Ewwwwwww.

My dog would still destroy that in under 2 minutes. Pigs ears and bull sticks are wasted on him. Doesn't stop him getting them, but entertaining him while we are out is much harder...

 

However, that is the happiest, most content dog I have seen in a long time.

Doing a shoulder tomorrow with the skin on it.

 

Will trim the skin and try this.
